Commodity Spares Ribs...Pictures

I went to the business Costco today and they had Commodity Ribs at $2.28 lb....our business Costco has all the types of ribs, loin back (baby back), St Louis, Spares and Commodity.....we like the Commodity Ribs because of the great flavor....Commodity Ribs weigh about 5 1/2lb per rack, they are Spares not trimmed. These will cook around 3 hours at 225 degrees (controlled by Stoker) then I will increase the temp to 275 to finish. Between 5 to 6 hours total time. These are the same kind of ribs sold in the BBQ joints in Oakland years ago. I use Mesquite lump charcoal, Hickory chunks and chips, no sauce, no wrapping. I let people put on their own sauce

    With spares you can get excellent results using 275 for the entire cook. No need to start lower unless you just want too. 275 is actually perfect for spares.

    Status- Standing by.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out. 
  • Three hours into the cook I just bumped the temperature up to 275°

    Going to have to try these. Have a biz costco I go to for full packer briskets but didnt look for these. Thanks for the tip. All the regular costcos here only sell flats. 3.25lb for a choice packer is a pretty good deal. At least in so cal

    Thanks, my local Costco is a regular Costco, I was hoping I'd get lucky and find a closer business Costco than Hayward.

    The ribs look.great.

    Nice looking ribs. Our local Safeway had spares for about $3.50 a pound, weight about 2 to 2-1/2 a rack. Maybe this week....

    Those look great john!! GJ!
    Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....
  • The question was asked on the other forum, is this all the charcoal that I used for a six-hour cook? That is all the charcoal I use..... Most of the charcoal I used was what was remaining after a 16 hour cook of a brisket.... Here is the picture of the remaining charcoal after the rib cook

    Does it take a special card to get into the Business Costco?  What is that ring container in your firebox? I have not seen one of those before.

    A regular Costco is all you need to get into the business Costco
